Mumbai: India will always remain a tolerant nation, veteran writer Javed Akhtar has said.
 
“There are certain instances of intolerance in some sections of the society. But India will always remain a tolerant society. 
 
“You can not term the entire nation intolerant,” Akhtar said on the sidelines of the Royal Stag Barrel Select Perfect Strokes Season 2 in Pune on Friday.
 
Earlier, at an event in New Delhi on Monday, Bollywood star Aamir Khan said: “When I sit at home and talk to Kiran, for the first time she said, ‘Should we move out of India?’ Now that’s a very disastrous and a big comment to make to me.”
 
The actor was widely criticised for his comments.
